About The Shams Band
After opening for Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros at the 2010 Chicago Bluegrass and Blues Festival, The Shams Band looks to develop their own nitche in the Chicago music scene. These young garage rockers bring energy, passion and captivating harmony to every live performance.
“The Shams Band scene was reminiscent of a southern dance hall upturned by bad-boy rockers. If it weren’t for their mid-western look, a body almost forgot she was in Chicago. With tinges of Wilco, Chuck Berry, and Sly and the Family Stone wrapped up in a rootsy twang package, the energy of The Shams Band is contagious.” -Erin Keane [Via Chicago]
